We are delighted to announce the recent appointment of Russell Thompson as Principal Geotechnical Engineer for CET Infrastructure. Russell will be responsible for the Midlands and Northern England territories and will be based in our Markham Vale offices, near Chesterfield.
Russell brings a wealth of experience to the position, having spent more than 25 years in the construction industry. In his 17 year career at Joynes Pike and Associates he was promoted from Geotechnical Engineer to Geotechnical Director and finally to Managing Director, where he spent two years running the multi-disciplinary consultancy.
His arrival at CET will enable us to broaden our service portfolio in the North of England with the addition of a new, regional geotechnical consultancy.
